Made in the U.S.A., this project demonstrated a a sustainable, safe reclamation of waste hydrogen with high efficiency and carbon foot print reduction.

An American based chemical manufacturer decided to make use of their waste hydrogen which significantly reduced their use of fossil fuel for their process steam requirements. But the customer needed the right company to deliver a controls, burner, boiler, fuel handling, blending, and a balance of plant integrated combustion package. They came to Preferred Utilities Manufacturing for a total combustion design solution which included a custom (IBEW / UL 508) PLC flame safe guard system with integrated combustion control, fuel ratio control, boiler water control and balance of plant interface. A 10″ touch screen operator interface with plant wide SCADA communications provides easy process / efficency monitoring and trouble shooting operations.

For single source responsibility, significant energy savings, and unsurpassed combustion engineering expertise, choose Preferred.

 
  1. NOx in Heating oil is significantly reduced: heating oil can contain less than 15 parts per million of sulfer. That is a 200-fold decrease in sulfer since 2014.
  2. Heating oil is a partially renewable fuel: more and more heating oils contain 2% – 5% plant derived biofuel, and likely to increase over time. Biofuel is a renewable energy source which also helps heating oil burn more completely while also helping your oil tank stay clean and free of sediment.
  3. Heating oil is safer than natural gas: on Sept. 13, 2018, old natural gas lines ruptured in an area of north of Boston, Mass, causing a series of explosions and fires damaging 40 homes and causing the death of a teenage boy. Gas service to more than 8000 homes was shut off, and some homes were without central heating more than a month later. This not an isolated incident – there are an estimated 23-26 gas explosions with 5-8 fatalities that happen across the country every year.
